The Tribe are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 non-conference games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 Tuesday games. The Chippewas are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Tuesday games. The over is 3-1-1 in Chippewas last 5 home games and the under is 6-0 in Tribe last 6 overall.
Besides losing to Lousiville and Duke on the road, William & Mary hasn't exactly played against or beat anybody this season and continue its struggles on the road dating back to last season. Central Michigan is simply filling it up on the offensive end and has a player in Keene who is taking over games with 30-plus points in three of his last four games. I'll gladly take the Chippewas at home and the low line.
